G57 First Test at Silverstone – Ryno Racing to Import G57 to U.S
It might be cold and wet outside Ginetta HQ, but the weather wasn’t going to dampen our Development Team’s spirits last week. They packed up their race truck and took the brand-new Ginetta G57 down to Silverstone circuit for a spot of pre-season testing.
Having been unveiled to the public at Autosport International on January 14, the 580bhp prototype caused quite a stir around the famous circuit. It was the first time that unmistakable roar of a hearty V8 was put on display, as newly announced Factory Driver Charlie Robertson ‘gave it the beans’.
As one of the fastest track day machines on the market, the G57 is a fun and accessible way to get on track for less than £200,000. It doesn’t stop there either: weighing in at under 900kgs, this ultimate track day toy is powered by a fearsome Chevrolet-sourced LS3 6.3-litre V8 engine which is developed in-house at Ginetta HQ, we guess the unrestricted aerodynamic package is just the icing on the cake.
Don’t just take our word for it though, the video below is a feast for your eyes and ears as we join the Ginetta team in savouring that gluteal sound of the brand new beast!
